The American Legal System
A delegation from France, a civil law country, is touring your company. Your visitors are interested in
learning more about the American legal system and the formation of the common law. In a
cohesively written, multi-paragraph essay, explain how the role of courts differs in countries with a
common law versus a civil law tradition. Make sure you explain how US courts make law, what we
mean by precedent, and why the doctrine of stare decisis has been so fundamental to the
development of the U.S. legal tradition.
Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly
communicates the required message to your audience. Organize your response in a clear and
logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audienceappropriate language, and correct conventions of standard American English.
